More About Jeep
They came into daylight after World War II, with theirs headquartered in Toledo, Ohio after the iconic four-wheel-drive military vehicle producer Willys-Overland, launched the Civilian Jeep or CJ versions in 1945, which was replaced by the Jeep Wrangler series, in production since 1986 The word Jeep came from “general purpose” or “GP” abbreviation. Some say it was derived from the character featured in Popeye’s comic of that time. The first civilian Jeep wearing the badge CJ-2A was introduced in the 1940s, fitted with features that were not available in the military version and were focused on everyday users. The updated version came in the mid-50s which remained in production for up to 30 years. During this time, the company was sold to Kaiser in 1953.
A new parent organisation was formed in the 1970’s, as American Motors Corporation purchased Kaiser-Jeep and new models were rolled out like CJ-7 and the Scrambler. New technologies were introduced such as the world’s first automatic full-time four-wheel-drive system named Quadra-Trac. This was the era when SUVs started to become popular among American buyers.
Recently introduced the Trackhawk version of Grand Cherokee SRT8 in which Jeep made exceptional performance and quality improvements both under the hood and inside the cabin. This will help in bringing new fans along with keeping the trust of old customers. Advertisements have always showcased Jeep badged vehicles with extreme off-roading capabilities.
The wrangler is one of the few SUVs out there that still feature solid front and rear axles. They are famous for durability, strength, and articulation. The new wrangler features top of the line differentials by world-renowned manufacturers. The refreshed Rubicon model is outfitted with electronically activated locking differentials with a robust suspension system. Solid axles are also modification friendly when owners try to go aftermarket as they are easier and cheaper to lift.
